If this doesn't make sense I will put up a picture tutorial.
OK, that makes a lot more sense!
Sounds like you came up with a quick-and-dirty way to get a fairly accurate measurement. I think it is useful information. I'll measure some of my shoes the same way and see what we get.
I'd also like to see a similar measurement for the forefoot, but the toe box gets in the way.
